Abstract The core of eastern White-winged Dove (Zenaida asiatica asiatica) breeding habitat historically occurred in northern México and southern Texas. Much nesting-habitat loss has occurred in this region since the mid-1900s and several large nesting colonies of the historic complex have disappeared with others currently at risk. Little knowledge exists regarding the precise location of these colonies or their current status. We reviewed the literature, interviewed biologists, and conducted…

Status of the White-Winged Dove in Southern Texas

The trapping locatio in the Sierra Chincua, which was a dry, open woodlot, differed from the rocky habitats previously reported for N. neotomodon (Hooper, 1954), and is the first individual of this subspecies reported since 1903.

Nest Predation and Differential Insular Extinction among Selected Forest Birds of Central Panama

Results suggest that over evolutionary time species-specific rates of nest loss may determine clutch replacement capability, thereby causing variation in tolerance of inflated insular nest predation, and underlie the pattern of differential extinction from Barro Colorado Island.

Home range and habitat utilization of the crested ibis in the breeding period

The crested ibis(Nipponia nippon) is one of the most endangered species in the world.There is only one wild population, about 200 individuals, distributing in Yangxian County of Shaanxi Province,

Factors affecting white-winged, white-tipped, and mourning dove reproduction in Lower Rio Grande Valley.

The authors' results do not suggest that reproduction of these species is limited by habitat availability, grackle predation, or food availability, and it is suggested that Habitat preservation and restoration should focus on woodlands dominated by Texas ebony and Texas sugarberry.

Breeding Birds of Isolated Woodlots: Area and Habitat Relationships.

Results from Illinois support previous conclusions that species that breed in forest interior habitat and winter in the tropics are most likely to be adversely affected by a reduction in forest habitat and show that bird communities in isolated tracts of forest are not random assemblages, but rather that species found in smaller woodlots are subsets ofspecies found in larger forests.

Evaluation of Auditory Counts for Estimating Breeding Populations of White-Winged Doves

The data did not provide convincing support for the premise underlying auditory counts of white-winged doves (i.e., number of doves calling reflects dove abundance), and the use of an electronic counter to estimate breeding populations ofwhite-winging doves holds promise, given technical modifications, and warrants further research.

Effects of Habitat Fragmentation on Bird Species in a Relict Temperate Forest in Semiarid Chile

Abstract: We analyzed the structure and composition of a bird assemblage in a fragmented relict temperate forest located in northcentral Chile ( Fray Jorge National Park). In terms of species

Effects of Residential Development on Forest-Dwelling Neotropical Migrant Songbirds

Many bird species are in local or regional decline because of habitat loss or degradation. We at- tempted to disentangle the effects of residential development from the effects of forest size on


Habitat loss and fragmentation affect forest birds through direct loss of breeding habitats, detrimental edge effects such as increased nest predation and brood parasitism, and possibly by limiting

Reconstructed Dynamics of Rapid Extinctions of Chaparral‐Requiring Birds in Urban Habitat Islands

The distribution of native, chaparral-requiring bird species was determined for 37 isolated fragments of canyon habitat ranging in size from 0.4 to 104 hectares in coasta4 urban San Diego County,
